hey there! i finally made a studyblr after a year of contemplating it and btw, i absolutely love your design (your icon thooo) and posts! i was wondering how you stay motivated to continually make nice notes and keep up the account. i mean, i love reblogging posts but when it comes to my own notes, i always end up running out of time and giving up all together with them. any tips?

ahh thank you i made it myself :) well i understand that taking pretty notes takes A LONG time and truthfully it’s a lot of work, and if you don’t have the time for it, DON’T DO IT! For me, i don’t take notes UNLESS they’re pretty, so the aesthetic of it actually motivates me to take notes if you know what i mean? another good way to take notes is to ask questions and answer them. your answers = your notes.
and i really love the studyblr community which is why i spend time on tumblr. if you do want to make original posts and don’t have a lot of time, you can always share little tips/ideas, take pictures of your study space, etc.

So Lucretia said that the IPRE crew an elite team of scientists and researchers. What do you think everyone's primary duties were on the ship? What were their backgrounds that led to them getting chosen for this mission?

Oh wow that’s a really good question. 

Well, we’ve got one role out of the way–we know Davenport was the captain. I don’t think there’s too much one say about him though, since I think it’s safe to say we don’t really know his true personality yet.

My first instinct was to suggest Lucretia had some sort of command role too, given how darn good she is at it. But actually, I think maybe not. Maybe she was primarily there as a researcher, collecting and analyzing data on the various planes they traveled. Maybe even an engineer, keeping the mixture of magic and technology that powered the ship running.

She never intended to be a leader. She never thought she’d be in that position. But…well. A lot of things worked out differently than she expected. Every day she questions whether she’s built to handle the responsibilities she’s laid on her own shoulders.

Lucretia and Davenport stayed shipside during away missions. Barry and Lup were usually up there with them. 

Lup was by far best utilized up in the ship, manning the weapons systems, but she often insisted on accompanying her bro to make sure he didn’t get into too much trouble without her. 

Barry used his arcane knowledge of life and death to act as an extremely unconventional medical officer. (He finds the idea of Merle as a healer funnier than anyone, given how many times he had to raise the knucklehead from the dead.) Occasionally he would enter the field, usually when things were going very, very wrong.

The THB were always a trio, though. They were always the away team, the first ones on the ground, exploring strange new worlds, seeking out life and new civilizations. That’s one thing that hasn’t changed.

Of course, in addition to this it’s worth remembering that every single one of them was an expert in their respective field of magic. Buncha nerds, all of them.

Immortality-as-a-political-issue is another one of those things that seem to make a lot of rationalists lose the ability to tell the difference between a good argument and an argument that supports their side. I would probably complain about it more, except that I don’t really think that public opinion on whether death is a good thing is likely to have any impact on the development of the technology in question. Like, you want to make this issue into a morality play? Fine, as long as you’ll be willing to listen to your opposition when it actually matters.

More "Gifted" movie question goodness!

Hello! Original movie reviewer here! I saw another question about the flick and whether or not Frank (Evans) loses custody of Mary (McKenna). 

BEWARE SPOILERS ALL YE WHO ENTER HERE. SPOILERS FOLLOW! 

Well, if you really, really, REALLY want to know…………………………..yes, he does lose custody, once it is revealed that he’s actually a ghost that Mary is seeing and that Frank is dead before the movie starts. Her “Gift” is really the ability to see ghosts. I didn’t see that plot twist coming……………..I kid, I kid! But no, he does not lose custody of Mary. The flick ends with Frank retaining custody, but trying to find a common balance with her abilities and being a little girl. It requires both of them to do a bit of growing up, maturing, and adapting.Very happy feel good, happy go lucky ending!

It gets REALLY weird though when Nick Fury shows up to recruit her for the Avengers though.    ;)

i was watching the duchess recently and i was wondering if you know any other period drama like shows or films that have wlw or f/f relationships? even subtext of it? (sorry of this isnt your thing btw just ignore this ask then)

There are a few but whether they’re actually good or not is a different question - really talking about Queen Christina in The Girl King - but anyway, if you’re not too fussy about accurate portrayals, it’s a fine enough film. 

The Girl King (2015), Farewell My Queen (2012), Fingersmith (BBC, 2005),  Dracula (NBC, 2013), The Danish Girl (2015), I’ve heard but haven’t personally seen it but Black Sails (Starz, 2016), Mystère à la Tour Eiffel (2015) - which I thought was a new up and coming film but has apparently been released. I’ll have to watch that. 

Up and coming on the BBC: The life of landowner and scandalous socialite  Anne Lister.

“What Shall I Do, Lemony Snicket?” from one of the special paperback versions of A Series of Unfortunate Events. I think this was from The Bad Beginning, or Orphans! 

I took these back in June of 2015 right after I graduated high school and was going to the campus university bookstore after our orientation and class scheduling. I’m glad I did because the bookstore doesn’t carry it anymore or else I would have totally bought it now. 

I just love these questions and answers, so I wanted to keep them as a means to laugh or smile when I was bored or upset. Now I felt like sharing them with you all. 

There’s this AU I’ve been talking about with a new pal o’ mine @randomsplashes  it’s an AU where literally everything is the same but yuuri is a pork cutlet bowl on skates. no one questions this except yurio, who is angry and confused that viktor slides literal katsudon onto the ice. like why is this allowed? whY is an actual pork cutlet bowl doing really fucking good??? like it doesn’t do anything but fucking fall over onto the ice and the judges are like “AND YUURI BEAT HIS PERSONAL BesT AGAIN” but everyone else is just like “yeah thats yuuri y u trippin”  

We’ve been literally dying over it for like a day now. We also created a Frat AU. 

@ lesbians who used to ID as bi: you’re good and you’re not reinforcing any biphobic ideologies about bi people “finally choosing a side” or “really just being gay”

@ bi girls who use to ID as lesbians: you’re good and you’re not reinforcing any lesbophobic stereotypes about lesbians “being closed-minded” or “actually being attracted to men”

Figuring yourself out is incredibly difficult and learning new things about yourself and your identity are never a bad thing. I’m proud of you for your journey and your self-discoveries, and I want you to know that you are a good person who deserves love, acceptance, and happiness

  • the least problematic game tbh

  • theyre actually dead and im very sad

  • please appreciate class 78

I find myself questioning the same shit over and over. What is God or the Universe trying to show me? What am I missing? What lessons am I not learning? Why am I constantly having to deal with the same situations from the same people for years now? Like WDF, I’m actually tired. But I know myself, I always have to feel before I learn, so maybe I’m just not paying attention or deep down I know what’s really good but I don’t want to admit it, so instead of facing things head on, I’m just going with the flow and in return I’m constantly taking L’s and getting hurt. Who knows, but 2016 has been so tough. I honestly am praying for lighter, brighter and just happier days. I deserve it.

Astrological Scary Movie: The Characters
  • Aries: The character who is really good at improvising with weaponry and coming up with hiding spots, and usually the one who decides really fast where to go when they're running away
  • Taurus: The one that refuses to believe any of it and is constantly saying things like "there's gotta be an explanation for all of this."
  • Gemini: The 'asks too many questions' character who's always commenting on what's going on, and sometimes, that's helpful. Ex: "Did that door just opened by itself?", "Was this book always here?"
  • Cancer: The character that looks terrified all the time but actually goes to great lengths to survive and/or keep their loved ones safe
  • Leo: The character that always tries to save everyone no matter the situation, the "proud hero" even if it means they end up dying

  • Aquarius: The first character to be tormented who later explains everything to the others as they're introduced, usually the one who unleashed the demon
  • Pisces: The character who figures the killer's background story and calms them down by talking to them, or connects with the demon and soothes it

sharpington  asked:

when you reblogged that face tutorial you mentioned you rarely see your hairline depicted in art--which hairline is that? I've never thought to pay attention to them before

Hey hey!! I’m so glad you posed this question!!

Hairlines aren’t really extensively talked about in terms of design, and I find that people just tend to use the same old ‘rounded’ or ‘squared-off’ hairlines when designing characters, ignoring the fact that natural hairlines are just as diverse as our other facial features. We lack proper language to describe them, and outside of the black natural hair community, people often don’t give hairlines a thought until they start to go bald. This problem with lack of terminology actually made it hard for me to find good reference for you!!

My hairline actually isn’t that rare in East Asian ethnicities, yet because it’s undesirable and doesn’t conform to beauty standards, no one ever depicts it in art save for a very select few that make it a part of their distinct style. The two artists that immediately come to my mind are illustrators Hayashi Seiichi and He Jiaying. Here is an excerpt from a Hayashi illustration:

And one from He Jiaying:

(He’s illustrations actually helped me come to love my hairline, after years of hiding it and being ashamed of it. Nowdays I don’t stare at my hairline in the mirror, feeling insecure and self-conscious, fervently wishing I could make my baby hairs grow thicker. I now rock a bun nearly daily. Representation matters!!)

My hairline was once described to me as ‘a variation of the classic straight’- though it looks normal when my hair is down, when it’s pulled up, two sharp triangles of baby hair immediately make themselves distinctly visible, too short to get pulled back along with the rest. These two patches right above the temples are thin and fluffy, different in texture to the rest of the scalp.

Here are some examples I yanked from the internet. Pay attention to how the patches of baby hair are visible only when the hair is pulled back:

You can even see it in some of the selfies I’ve posted onto tumblr, lmao!! (#truffs face) My mother, grandmother and both blood related aunts (all entirely Korean) share this hairline with me. It’s entirely genetic, very common and nothing we should be ashamed of.

Now that I’ve embraced my hairline, whenever I draw myself or my characters who share this trait, I tend to deliberately draw in these patches of thinner hair, making sure to pay attention to the directional pull of the strands and visually communicate that it’s less full in these areas. I know my own insecurity made me hyper-aware of hairlines since youth, and normally people don’t pay attention to them at all. But I still objectively feel that they are an important feature of how a head is designed overall, and mine is a distinct physical aspect of myself, and I want people to know that I LOVE my hairline and I know that it’s worth being represented!!

Hey guys, little question

Remember the shitshow “Operation Canada” that I abandoned because I was too busy actually going on adventures to be actually drawing them? Well.. now that I’m back in France and actually have time, would y’all be interested in comics, weekly, about memories of my time there (small comics  this time because tf was I thinking before?? it was so fucking long??) ?
Funny, very gay stuff that actually happened, quiet moments, sad moments, whatever I remember and feel like it’d make a good comic basically. A fun nostalgic little recollection of memories. (but really my life is super gay so it’ll be super gay for sure).

Not only would it make more exclusive (as in, not fanart) content for you guys, but it might also be a way for me to cope with the fact that I’m not there anymore. I don’t promise regularity, because every time I try it it stresses me out too much, but here and there from time to time? It’d be posted on the Operation Canada blog, but I’d reblog each comics here too

It’s just a very very young idea I’m entertaining, so nothing is set in stone yet, but I’d love your input, as always

Tell me if you’re interested, ignore this if you aren’t :) ♥

Dan Wilson (Taylor’s co-writer) performing Treacherous at Room 5 in Los Angeles on November 14, 2012.

“Taylor Swift and I wrote a song in the Spring and we recorded it a few weeks later and I added some stuff to it and it was out a few months after that.

It was really, really a very smooth and fast (relatively speaking for me anyways) process and one of the questions that several people asked online was “What is it like writing with Taylor Swift?” and I just want to say, you know when she makes that amazed expression on the TV awards show like she is just astonished that she just won? That’s how she treats a new good idea in a writing session too and it’s incredibly motivating. It actually makes you want to come up with another great idea to make her make that astonished face.

One cool thing is that if she comes up with something really cool, she makes the same face also. I admire that kind of, you know, transparency.

We wrote this song called Treacherous that I’m going to play.”

Someone gave my mom an old photo album. I really wish they hadn’t…

by reddit user sleepyhollow_101

Every once in a while, something very interesting will come into my mom’s library.

We live in a small town, so people often go to the library for answers, knowing that my mother has an extensive background in researching things like history and genealogy. Those are the people we get most often, actually: people with questions about their own family history. Oftentimes they’ll come in with partial records and ask my mother to fill in the gaps. She’s always more than happy to do it. Not only is she good at it, but it also serves as an acceptable reprieve from the relative boredom of small-town life.

Reasons to watch BBC Class

- Racially diverse teen cast
- Like a significant portion of the main cast is not white
- LGBT representation
- Like an actual gay couple is established in the first episode and its not questioned or even a part of the plot they’re just together and I love it
- It’s like all the best parts of supernatural (monster hunting), doctor who (aliens), and sherlock (cinematography) combined with young avengers (kick ass teen cast)
- the writer/producer of the series is Patrick Ness, an LGBT YA Author
- The plot is actually good
- The theme song is catchy
- It’s a really good show
- Cause I said so

You know what I think?

‪I think Derek actually is the one who had Stiles questioning if he only liked girls.

I feel like at first he just realized “huh, he’s so goodlooking wow.” Then that morphed into like a sexual thing. Like he only really saw Derek’s good looks and the whole cool werewolf thing as his only good qualities at first because ya know, they used to hate each other.

So it made Stiles question but he could easily brush it off at first because he’s still a teenager and he doesn’t have it all figured out yet, the whole “this is just a phase” thing.

But then he actually starts liking Derek, in a “we’re sort of an odd duo, but we do make a pretty good pair” (of friends!!!!). Like they actually got passed the “you need me to survive that’s why you’re helping” stage. He really just genuinely started liking Derek, just calm friendly like at first, but that like into more of a crush like than a friend like without him even noticing.

And he feels it there but he just avoids it but then that night at the glow in the dark party? Kaitlyn asks the golden question, “do you?”

And he just sits there for a while. His mind immediately flashes to Derek and he thinks like “wait a minute, I actually fucking might,” like guys, that is.

Stiles sort of realizes it’s become more than “you’re hot and I wanna experiment,” and more than, “I actually don’t mind hanging out with you anymore, it’s kind of cool because you’re not as much of a shitty person as I thought you were.” It’s more of a “I really think I’m falling for you but I’ve liked girls my whole life and we used to hate each other. What’s going on?”

So he doesn’t get the chance to ever answer because he really isn’t sure at first. But the thoughts after that question are stuck with him. And overtime, he starts noticing little things about Derek, like really taking note. Like Derek’s actually smart and actually selfless and his bunny teeth and how he’s actually funny when he tries (it’s a bland and dry humor, snarky remarks when they bicker and Stiles gets sarcastic but Stiles appreciates and enjoys it regardless). Stiles starts realizing all these things that could factor into why he might actually like Derek (if he does because he isn’t 100% on that yet).

He starts realizing that Derek really isn’t the guy he met back in the woods, that Derek is more, that Derek is actually a great person under that hard exterior. He starts realizing how he used to get and still gets whenever something goes wrong with Derek, how he starts worrying and all. He starts looking at Derek in a new way, looks when Derek is oblivious, sort of the whole “admire from afar” thing, and can hardly help it, can hardly deny that he starts getting a little happier whenever Derek comes around, but he’s still, in a way, denial.

The night Derek almost dies changed that because for a brief moment he felt like he stopped breathing as he watched Derek bleed out on the ground.

He felt numb and he wanted to stay but knew he couldn’t. All he could do was hope that Derek would still be well and alive in the morning, that they would all be, and then he’d be able to tell Derek because he knew completely. Knew what it felt like to almost lose someone you care about so much.

Stiles wasn’t sure what he was going to say, how Derek would take it or how it would effect them, but it didn’t really matter in the end because he never got to say it.

Derek left and Stiles couldn’t even be mad because he knew Derek needed it, deserved it.

So, life went on and he tried to shove his feelings aside because it didn’t really matter anymore.

Except it did, which he realizes on the night at the school, seeing Derek’s initials.

I’d like to think that the reason for Stiles’ smile was because he had fully come to term with the fact that he did indeed have feelings for Derek. He wasn’t able to tell Derek, but he could finally admit it to himself.

No more questioning, no more “this is just a phase.” None of that.

Stiles just accepted it, and he was okay with it.
